VIVA, Kuwait’s newest and most advanced mobile telecommunications service provider, today announced the launch of its annual Iftar meals program for Ramadan. The program offers free Iftar meals each day to fasting Muslims in the areas of Jahra and Jleeb Al Shuyoukh.
Commenting on this initiative, Abdulrazzaq Al-Essa, Senior Communication Manager at VIVA said: “VIVA’s Iftar programme has proven to be very popular in previous years and it is developing in to something of a tradition for the company. Ramadan is the month of kindness and giving, and offering Iftar meals to those who fasted is very rewarding. As the Prophet, may peace be upon him, said: “Whoever feeds a fasting person has the same reward as him, except that the reward of the fasting person will not be diminished."
"VIVA is proud to provide help to Muslims throughout the Holy month of Ramadan to assist their continued health and wellbeing during the period of fasting. During the program, a team from VIVA will be present to oversee meal distribution, ensure the cleanup of halls before and after sunset, and look after the needs of any fasting person while at the halls. In addition to Iftar meals, VIVA will also be very active in providing a wide range of religious and charitable activities.”
Iftar meals are just one of many of the charitable events and activities that the company will be holding throughout the month of Ramadan. These events highlight the importance of charitable work and caring for the poor and the needy, a core element of the company’s policy of supporting the needs of the community. During this program, VIVA will seek to encourage Kuwaiti nationals to participate in charity programs and instil a sense of giving across all community segments.
